Miles Kauhaahaa: a Drop-Knee experience in Jaws

Miles Kauhaahaa has ridden Jaws in Drop-Knee mode, during one of the largest swells of the last 40 years in Maui, Hawaii.

Bodyboarders keep pushing their limits and exploring new frontiers. This time, Miles Kauhaahaa decided to ride Peahi, one of the fastest waves in the world, in Drop-Knee mode.

Apparently, nobody had done it before. Perhaps because nobody's crazy enough to drop into Jaws with a pair of bodyboard fins, in "praying" mode, alongside top surfers John John Florence, Ian Walsh, and many more.

Miles Kauhaahaa is a professional bodyboarder from Maui. He has been a frequent rider in the Pipeline Pro, and in 2013 he finished the IBA Drop-Knee World Tour in 9th place.

Watch Kauhaahaa riding Jaws in "Jack Stance", and chasing uncrowded waves with Damien Boone, in Molokai.
